A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

Ruthless Support is a support gem that causes every third attack made with the skill to deal substantially more damage and have increased base stun duration.


Skill functions and interactions

When supported by Multistrike Support, Ruthless blows work differently, instead of occurring every third hit, it occurs every third multistrike. This means hits from the first 2 uses (attacks 1 - 6) will be "normal blows" and all hits from the 3rd multi-strike use (attacks 7-9) will be ruthless blows.

Using this idea, Ruthless Blow may actually trigger by skill use, rather than skill attack, meaning, you will have to use the attack skill 3 times to trigger Ruthless Blow.

The Ruthless Blow counter still counts if you hit with a skill or not, for example, if you miss the first 2 hits of your supported attack, Ruthless Blow will count at your last 3rd attack, whether it be a hit or not.

Channeled skills and Cyclone can not be supported by Ruthless and will not interact with it in any way.
